What is this class? What should it be?
So far, this class has overwhelmed, inspired, frustrated, and mystified me. I am so glad I am taking it!
Some future suggestions:
- Provide some hope for effective solutions earlier on. It gets pretty depressing with the hopelessness of all the world’s problems.
Some other project ideas:
- Research local businesses or non-profits that do not currently have sustainability on their agenda. Have small teams each choose different organizations to write a plan of action to encourage them to become involved in sustainability. The team will show how going green can be profitable and meaningful.
- Participate in local sustainability efforts. I think it is important to see what is going on around us, outside the classroom on what we are discussing. Field trips to locations would be ideal.(i.e. visit local urban garden in City Heights iniitated by the IRC)
